Strategic Sales at DoorDash

Caroline landed $200k+ job at DoorDash in Strategic Sales after 10+ years in CPG

I was working in the same industry (CPG sales) for 11 years starting out of college. I had been considering making a career transition to tech for a few years but didn’t know where to begin. I experienced burnout in late 2021 that led me to quit my job without my next company/role lined up. As a result of working with Priscilla, I gained confidence in every aspect of the job search. I didn’t know how to market my skillset for the tech industry prior to working with Priscilla and by the end I was in a great flow when telling my story to potential employers or new network contacts. I gained the know-how on how to start the job search process from scratch. I especially liked learning about the value of my network and the importance of maintaining connection with colleagues and friends over the years. Once I did the exploration work with Priscilla, the whole process was more streamlined. I was equipped with the knowledge of the companies I wanted to target, the job descriptions I wanted to apply to, and how to tell my story to potential employers. In the end, my job offer was a result of networking because a friend connected me to her contact at the company. I ended up accepting an offer with a top tech company (DoorDash) that I was targeting with a 30% increase in compensation, plus equity in the company! I negotiated a significant sign-on bonus with Priscilla’s help, I am doing much more strategic work and get to enjoy a 100% remote work lifestyle. I found a job that satisfied what is important to me in my life right now.
